Do you get that feeling sometimes you're so tired your head is just going to drop down at any moment? We've all been there, and it's hard to deal with this feeling, especially when doing something important work or hanging out with family. Here are 15 ways to energize yourself you can do almost anywhere! We hope this will help charge your battery!
1. Eat a banana
2. Place head between your legs
3. Drink Green Tea
4. Pinch your cheeks
Our grandparents probably had a good reason to pinch our cheek. This stimulates the blood flow to the face and makes you feel more alert.
5. Drink lots of water
All body systems require a large amount of water to function. In the absence of water in the body, proper functioning slows, blood flow becomes weaker and less oxygen reaches the brain. Drink a glass of water every two hours at least, when the goal is to drink 8-12 glasses of water a day.
6. Get some sun
Small doses of vitamin D can be a great incentive. Take a walk or sit a few minutes in the sun. Fresh air combined with natural light will make you feel more alert.
7. Move the body
Once you feel the fatigue taking over, get up and shake your body. Do some stretching, push-ups, a short trip or just a few jumps instead. Movement stimulates blood flow in the body and releases endorphins that make you feel alert.
8. Laugh out loud
9. Take a deep breath
10. Put in a house plant
Stuffy offices have limited air movement which can increase fatigue and cause headaches and allergies. Insert household plants that can help filter out volatile chemical compounds and airborne pollutants, as well as stimulate air movement to better help you deal with the standing air, and make you feel less fatigued.
11. Smell a lemon
Certain smells citrus, ginger and mint can produce a stimulating effect and increase alertness. Light a scented candle or sniff a lemon for stimulating energy and improved mood.
12. Surround yourself in red
Studies show that the color red is associated with a sense of victory and confidence. Try to surround yourself in shades of red to elevate your mood.
13. Sit upright
14. Wake up the brain
15. Play with a pet
